In the recent season Germán and his team decided to install laser bird deterrent systems to avoid cherry crop loss. The first Autonomic was installed to cover an area of 18 hectares called El Manzano, the second Autonomic covered another area of 9 hectares called El Burro.
“We have always looked for better alternatives than the bird deterrents we already used such as gas cannons which would only work for a few days because birds get used to them. We first learned about the laser bird deterrent on the internet and the Autonomic immediatly triggered our curiousity. I heard about the system before and found the idea of laser bird deterrent very interesting. We are always willing to try new things so I decided to try out two Autonomics on both of our cherry fields.
